On Sunday, April 23, thousands participated in the March for Science – Houston, a peaceful event to celebrate science, research and the environment. Around the world, similar marches took place in multiple cities. In Houston, the group gathered at Sam Houston Park and then walked several blocks to  Houston City Hall, where several members of TMC institutions addressed the crowd, among them:

Huda Zoghbi, M.D., Ph.D., professor in the departments of pediatrics, molecular and human genetics, neurology and neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine and director of the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital

Brian Bruel, M.D., anesthesiologist and director of the Baylor College of Medicine Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department

Zhifeng Ren, Ph.D., physicist and MD Anderson Chair of the Texas Center for Superconductivity and the University of Houston

Laurence Yeung, Ph.D., professor of physical chemistry and earth science at Rice University
